PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Locomotion is a powerful story about a seven-year-old boy whose memories of his parents, his caretaker, Miss Edna, and events in school fill the pages in exquisite and “readable” poetry. Students learn empathy for Lonnie Collins Motion, better known as Locomotion as they read through the poetry written by Jacqueline Woodson. This book won the National Book Award Finalist and is recommended for Grade Six.

Provided for students to use with Locomotion is a Poetry Analysis and directions to use this Graphic Organizer to write a powerful analysis of any poem in the book.

Jacqueline Woodson has written a variety of poetic forms in this novel. Sixth graders can use the models she writes, along with the scaffolding I have provided, to write List Poems, Epistle Poems, Haiku, and yes, even sonnets. This book is a must for sixth grade students!
